When it comes to the World Superbike Classic Corners, the Honda squad has nailed down five of the best. This is a real insight into the turns that really make the difference, and some of the most iconic corners in the world are featured with a unique insight from Jonathan Rea. We’ll be lucky to practice any of these for ourselves, but every one of them is truly spectacular. Take it away!
Turn 12 – Phillip Island
